The 6D.ai team continues to grow, with two new team members joining us. I’d like to welcome Jeff McConathy as 6D’s Vice President of Engineering, and Ben Benfold as a Senior Computer Vision Engineer. Jeff joins us from Trulia where he joined as employee #4 and grew with the company through their IPO and acquisition by Zillow to be VP Consumer Engineering, managing over 100 engineers.
The bottom half of the cloud is for me, the interesting part. An AR system, by its very nature, is too big for a device. The world is too large to fit, it would be like trying to fit all of google maps and the rest of the web on your phone (or HMD). The key insight is that if you want your AR app to be able to share the experience, or work well (ie with awareness of the 3D world it exists in) in any location, the app just can’t even work at all without access to these cloud services.

@vactivity@6d_ai Thanks. Yes, there are some good “depth map from mono+cnn” methods out there. Gives a depth frame. Results aren’t awesome for multiuser AR or building a persistent 3D model. We use geometry+cnn+fusion engine to get a true persistent 3D mesh suitable for AR
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
